Statement from Minister Darragh O’Brien

Statement from Minister Darragh O’Brien “I am aware of allegations published in relation to a board member of An Bord Pleanála recently, allegations which have been denied by the member concerned. 

I have appointed Remy Farrell, S.C. to provide a report to inform my consideration of the matter.

Pending the outcome of these considerations, it would be inappropriate for me to comment further.

An Bord Pleanála is independent in the performance of its functions under the Planning and Development Act.”
